Workflow Enhancements | ALPHACAM 2022.1
Various updates have been made to improve how users interact with ALPHACAM. Starting with an updated file browser to instantly open files through to an all-new double click command to quickly access common commands, these enhancements help users access their data and commonly used commands more quickly, saving time while programming. Also included are a new Tool Library Search for quickly finding tools, the ability to set default templates for layers and geometry, and new keyboard shortcuts for quick and intuitive navigation through the software.
Nesting Enhancements | ALPHACAM 2022.1
Version 2022.1 brings a host of new features to ALPHACAM’s xNesting. Now, when there are multiple sheets of the same pattern in a job, the software only outputs one pattern with the quantity designated in the sheet label, report, and NC file, saving processing time. A new Common Cut technology reduces machining time by optimizing toolpaths that include parts with common lines. Additionally, angled saw cuts and angled work planes are now able to be nested.
Automation Enhancements | ALPHACAM 2022.1
ALPHACAM’s already robust automation tools gain a host of performance improvements which make it faster and easier to work with large databases, process multidrills, and preview parts. Improvements to xAutomation’s workflow allow for users to better manage configurations with new expand/collapse tools and find materials more quickly with improved sorting capabilities.
